Standing order

If you choose this option you must make your own arrangements with your bank or building society. Your account reference must be quoted and payment amounts and dates need to match what is shown on your bill.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Please ensure that the correct reference number is quoted when using all methods of payment. If not, we may not be able to allocate the funds directly to your account.

If you have forgotten to pay and your due date has passed, please pay immediately by debit card over the telephone.


You can sign up for future e-billing, so that your invoices are sent by email rather than in the post.


If your business rates account is in credit you may be entitled to have this refunded.
